TBN Takes the Lead With Family Friendly Network Programming
LOS ANGELES --- As faith-and-values conscious consumers increase their demand for programming that is safe for kids and friendly to families, cable and digital providers have increasingly looked to faith-based and Christian networks to fill that unique need. And no network has been more proactive at meeting the demand for family-friendly programming than Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world’s largest religious network and America’s most-watched faith channel.
Beginning in 1973 as a single UHF station in southern California, today TBN reaches every major continent via 72 satellites and more than 18,000 television and cable affiliates worldwide. Most importantly for cable providers committed to maximizing channel options for viewers, TBN offers five distinct networks that each broadcast quality family-friendly programming 24 hours per day.
“For over three decades TBN has been providing quality exclusive programming that appeals to every member of the family,” said Bob Higley, TBN’s Vice President of Cable and Satellite Relations. “In fact, our five networks make TBN the cable industry’s only faith-friendly network that effectively reaches every age demographic.”
Those networks are:
-- TBN Flagship Network, America’s most-watched faith-based channel. Available in over 90 percent of America’s homes, TBN has set the standard for religious and faith-friendly programming. Its 24-hour broadcast format includes not only the most popular religious programs available worldwide, but a full line-up of music, variety, talk, and exclusive movies and special features.
-- JCTV, a fully digital network geared for teens and young adults. JCTV features round-the-clock cutting edge Christian music videos, reality and game shows, relevant talk programs, comedy, extreme sports, and much more.
-- The Church Channel, the only network featuring America’s most popular church services from a wide variety of Protestant and Catholic congregations—broadcast 24 hours a day.
-- TBN Enlace USA, America’s premier Spanish language faith network. TBN Enlace offers viewers the best inspirational programs from Latin America and the most popular programs from TBN all in Spanish—24 hours a day.
-- Smile of a Child TV, TBN’s exclusive network for kids. Smile of a Child TV features 24-hour faith-based programming that parents can trust for their children.
TBN has also rolled out a state of the art High Definition studio and production facility at its flagship station in Costa Mesa, California, and is continuing to upgrade its production facilities across the country to HD. “HD has increasingly become the production format cable providers are requesting,” explained Paul Crouch Jr., TBN’s Chief of Staff, “and TBN has made it a point of staying on the cutting edge of this technology. We think this strategy will keep TBN at the forefront of family-friendly television for a long time to come.”
